Thanks everyone, the more I run the Wyvern, the happier I become with it. A small generator would make a good load for the little engine, any suggestions?

I have used small DC motors from the model making world as generators. My 25cc horizontal engine, a bit smaller than yours, has a model boat motor geared up 4-1with a toothed belt that will deliver 120W and will start the engine with a 12V battery. There is some stuff around here:

I am always happy to supply any more details that I can.

Best regards
